Adam Carriker DL WAS 1 Month

Three sources tell ESPN Radio 980 the Redskins will give free agent DE Adam Carriker a chance to prove his health in June.

A team source tells ESPN's John Keim the Redskins don't plan to re-sign free agent DE Adam Carriker at a lower price.

With Carriker going on 30 and having missed 30-of-32 games, the Redskins are ready to move on. He was released with a "failed physical" designation. Carriker admitted last month that his quad still wasn't 100 percent, but that he expected to be ready for training camp. Carriker's health should ensure that he'll be passed over in the first wave of free agency.
